So we cannot use the hooker plugin in DMS at all without adding a child theme?

Recommended Posts

We have been customizing sites with the old framework for about a year and loved it.  We could easily add hooks into the site (for example a line under the post title or a footer design at the bottom of the site) but now it seems we cannot do that without going through all the hoops of creating a child theme? 

 

Please tell me I am missing something here.  We have been with pagelines for almost a year now and have used the custom CSS code plus the hooker plugin to make some awesome custom sites.  Now, it seems a lot more complicated? 

 

I have read the docs on hooks a couple times and this just seems way more complicated than it used to be.  Are we getting hooker back for DMS?

 

And I cannot even attempt to create a child theme because the base theme is not available for download.  

 

Please help!

Thank you for your help but is this the only way?  Does anybody know if the hooker plugin is gone?

 

Thanks,

Hi again

I read in this

http://docs.pagelines.com/advanced/hooks

They said

"All hooks are added to the functions.php file, which is located in either the Base Theme or the PageLines Customize Plugin, depending on the Customization Method you have chosen"

So we need wait

Yea, I saw that too.  I have my base child theme installed and ready to go but I have no idea how to write php for hooks and I have been reading all about them.  The hooker plugin basically let you choose the place you wanted to inject the hook from a dropdown menu, then you popped in your code and saved it.  Simple and easy.  

 

I thought the whole idea of this DMS was to make customizing easy so I don't understand why they would take away the awesome hook function they had in the old framework.  

 

If anyone has a any suggestions for how to easily add hooks into a base child theme, please let me know!

      How can I get support on pagelines DMS? The product isn't that old and my skeleton themes aren't working and I can't get support in the same way?

      I have a number of legacy websites that are running on the above version of Pagelines DMS, where the template has stopped working. I am using a skeleton theme to all of them. What do I need to do to rectify this.

      Hi,
      I am hoping to figure out how I can get my PageLines Full Nav to display layered in front of a sticky footer element on my website - 3keymedia.com
      I would like the Full Nav to overlay the entire screen when opening the menu as you will see when opening on a desktop the footer of nav content is cropped by the sticky footer.
       
      Thanks

      Hi everyone, since Instagram had allowed to publish in different ratio formats (instead of only square ratio) the grams stripe has different heights. Can you tell me if i can fix it easily with some CSS?

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      See:
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
          }
      }
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?
